Remember when Glenn Danzig pushed North Side Kings frontman Danny Marianino and got punched in the face? "North Side Kings are undefeated!" Lol. That happened in 2004. If you can't recall, here's the infamous video: In a new interview with La Weekly, Danzig was asked about the incident. In responding, Danzig neglects to mention that he pushed Marianino first, and calls the whole thing "a setup." Here's the relevant exchange:
You were punched in the face by North Side Kings singer Danny Marianinho after a gig in 2004. What led to this altercation? That was him trying to get me on camera punching him so he could sue me or some shit. I forget what it was. When everyone was breaking it up, he coldcocked me. What are you going to do? So he had planned to hit you? Yeah, those were his guys with the camera. No one knows that. Well, back then they did. It was a setup. Did it hurt? No. [Laughs].
